People Are Sharing Pictures Of Their Less Than Ideal Christmas Sleeping Arrangements As #DuvetKnowItsChristmas Returns

People Are Sharing Pictures Of Their Less Than Ideal Christmas Sleeping Arrangements As #DuvetKnowItsChristmas Returns

At Christmas, people travel thousands of miles just to see those nearest and dearest to them, but once there they might not get quite the comfort they're used to at home.

That's why #DuvetKnowItsChristmas is back - a hashtag for people sharing their uncomfortable sleeping arrangements over the festive period.

Each year, journalist Rhodri Marsden compiles a thread from load of people who are jammed into weird spots about the house, propped up on airbeds in laundry rooms, or crammed back into the childhood bed that they grew up with - covered by the same Thomas the Tank Engine duvet they outgrew aged 11 - during the festive period.

It's become something of a Christmas tradition in itself:

Of course, whilst this is all funny, it's not really about that. Regardless of where you sleep, it's still nice to go home to see your family and friends, even if you do get shoved up against a wall or have to sleep underneath the sideboard in the utility room

It's all for a good cause, as well. This year, Marsden has partnered with homelessness and rough sleeping Shelter to raise awareness that 'not everyone has a home at Christmas'. He's asking people to share their pictures and make a generous donation.

Alongside Twitter, they hope they can raise a bit of money for people 'who don't even have a camp bed underneath their parents' stairs to kip underneath this Christmas.

Shelter's campaigns director Greg Beales said: "It's totally shocking that 320,000 people in Britain have been swept aside by the housing crisis and now have no place to call home.

"We desperately need action now - to change tomorrow for the hundreds of thousands whose lives will be blighted by homelessness this winter.  That's why we are so pleased to partner with Twitter who will get the message out there that now is the time to act."

Merry Christmas everyone - wherever you end up sleeping.
